Reports Wednesday claimed Democrat Deb Haaland could be the first Native American congresswoman in history after she won a New Mexico district primary Tuesday night.

Haaland herself, a Pueblo of Laguna tribe member, told ABC News she would be the first Native American congresswoman since the nation’s founding.

“In 230 years, there’s never been a Native American woman in Congress. I have never seen myself in that body of our government. Ten years ago, when I was out in Indian country knocking on doors and driving folks to the polls, I never thought I would run for Congress,” she said.

Numerous mainstream outlets praised Haaland’s win Tuesday night, saying she could be the first Native American congresswoman.

Of course, the media’s claims don’t square with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage – something that wasn’t lost on Twitter users.

Just earlier this year, CNN published reports on Sen. Warren pushing back against calls for her to submit to a DNA test to confirm her heritage.

Throughout the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump openly mocked “goofy” Sen. Warren on several occasions, calling out her claims of 1/12 Native American heritage and humorously labeling her “Pocahontas.”

It will be interesting to hear Haaland’s response if she’s ever asked what she thinks about Sen. Warren’s purported ancestry.
